In partnership with UEX Global, the leading health insurance provider for individuals and SMEs in Singapore, we thought we would discuss taking care of the health of your skin.
Taking care of your skin is the ultimate pursuit this 2018. This is peak self-care because your health condition is ultimately reflected on your skin. Even with the best skin products in the world, things like weather, stress, air pollutants, diet and other environmental and day to day factors can wreck havoc on our skin. Your skin’s state can be the first symptoms of a more problematic health condition.
Besides your diet, protecting your skin from external environmental pollutants and balancing your stress, a facial is also a great way to pamper your skin and give it the extra boost it needs to heal up.
